Plagued with really lackluster ratings this season and several cast members looking to quit, Basketball Wives is desperately floundering.
The fifth season was all about Evelyn Lozada‘s marital breakdown from Chad Johnson and Tami Roman changing her image. Kind of. With the season ending, producers approached the ladies about filming the reunion, but Evelyn reportedly balked! Sources say she is sick of discussing her very brief albeit disastrous marriage, plus she’s not getting along with any of her castmates and is scared of secrets they may spill!
Sources tell TMZ VH1 then decided to cancel the whole reunion after Evelyn refused to cooperate and filming will not be rescheduled. The other wives just have nothing exciting going on and have nothing to talk about so without Evelyn’s drama there basically is no point. Producers felt there simply wasn’t enough material.

Which is Evelyn’s next move. With several product lines in the works and other television opportunities, Evelyn is “tired of the cattiness” of BBW and wants to move on.
HipHopHollywood adds that Evelyn’s difficult relationships with several of the ladies is another reason the reunion was nixed. Since filming wrapped Evelyn has fallen out with Tasha Marbury and Tami. “Marbury is still salty about Lozada writing about her husband Stephon’s affair in her book, and believes Lozada is ‘not as loyal of a friend’ as she claims to be,” a source claims.
And the real reason Evelyn skipped the reunion is she was afraid Tasha and Tami would retaliate against her by unleashing scandalous secrets about her relationship with Chad – and her new boyfriend LA Dodgers player Carl Crawford. Evelyn was so afraid of what would be revealed she told producers they could “sue her” if necessary but she would NOT be showing up!
Evelyn’s rep denies the entire story, btw! “Your story is not accurate. Evelyn’s reasons for not wanting to film the reunion is solely because she refuses to further talk about or discuss her ex-husband. And, Evelyn Lozada never stated that production could sue her,” her rep said in a statement.
Interestingly, a quick peek at Evelyn’s twitter verifies that she doesn’t even have Basketball Wives listed in her info – so perhaps she is quitting!
